Although media is accessed by everyone, media is not necessarily accessible to everyone.

This conference by AMI media accessibility specialist Simone Cupid will walk us through described video, as well as the art of integrated described video. Her conference will provide an overview of the best practices and guidelines for creating accessible media content for blind and vision-restricted users. We will learn how to ensure our production is accessible from inception through to the finished product and leave with a fuller understanding and appreciation of why media accessibility should never be an afterthought.
